Best Chinese/Taiwanese

This might be too broad a category, with dim sum places included alongside beef noodles and barbecue joints.

A few that might belong under this heading:

Ding Tai Feng
Gao Chi
Kiki
Shin Yeh

Best Italian, again with a few suggestions:

Capones
Cosi o Cosi
Cucina Sole
Walilei

Thanks Taffy.

Yes, the Chinese/Taiwanese category is a hard one. There are just too many variables and very likely almost every vote would be for "Other" leaving me to manually count and add each vote and then end up with a winner that has only two votes (Second place is a tie between 142 other restaurants). I had the same problem with setting up a "Beef Noodle" category.

The other option is to separate the main category into a lot of more specific categories. I'm not sure I would be able to get these done in time for voting. The specific categories will be in next year's voting though.

Thanks for the start on Italian, I'm working on it.

Keep 'em coming!

Best Vegetarian:
Yangming Spring
YuShanGe
Enso Kitchen
Evergreen Vegetarian Restaurant
Hui Liu
King Join
La Marquise a 5 Heures

(Obviously the noodle shop around the corner from where I live has the best vegetarian food in Taipei, but it might not be of much help if everybody voted for their favourite food stalls. The restaurants I suggested are all somewhat "special", a place for a nice dinner instead of grabbing a quick bite.)

I would like to see Best Teahouse and Best Cocktails but don't know of any poll options to get started with, sorry.

It would be very helpful if all these places in all the categories were linked say with google maps for their address.
Otherwise they are just names and I have no time to search for something I may never find.

I would like to try some of these places out.

Is this voting system flawed though?
How can you vote if you haven't tried ALL the places on the list?
